Turquoise and Coral

If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen the picture of my husband and son repairing a hole my oldest put in our bathroom wall.. He jumped off the toilet and tried to hang from the towel rack.. needless to say, it didn't end so well for him. As is any great idea goes unplanned, we used this as a learning experience. You put the hole in the wall, you get to {help} repair the wall. So over the weekend, we stopped in at Lowe's to get the items needed to repair the wall. Wouldn't ya know it, it was like they knew we were comin'. Right there, in the center aisle next to the paint, was a dry wall repair kit with everything you needed in the kit. I'll let ya know how the stuff works! :)

For today's outfit, the shirt I'm wearing has "wings" as my boys say.. They're pretty silly!

Several Ways to Wear it Wednesday!

I've done these several ways to wear it posts before.. But I want to challenge myself to wear a few pieces at least three times. Today, I was cleaning out an old notebook and came across a list with outfit ideas titled "Several Ways to Wear it" and I decided I needed to make a little challenge for myself. So, once I complete the outfit challenge, I will be posting the Several Ways to Wear it posts on Wednesdays. 

Today's post features my polka dot skinny jeans!


Looks: 

Out of the three looks, the middle is by far my favorite. And, after wearing the other two outfits, I have gotten rid of both the pink shirt and the cream sweater.

1 Year!

Today marks my ONE YEAR blog-iversary!! I'm so excited. In creating this blog, it has challenged me to get creative with my outfits and not to get stuck into a "work uniform" during the school year. I haven't blogged as much as I wanted to lately, but life happens. I plan to continue blogging, but my posts will probably be few and far between the next school year. 

Lately, I've really enjoyed wearing skirts and dresses, as you'll see in some (hopefully) upcoming blog posts. Today's outfit is a dress, that I think I wore on my first day of summer classes... at the beginning of June. :)

Hello Last Week of July!

I can't believe at the end of this week... it will be AUGUST! I've spent the last few weeks finishing up my summer classes, enjoying the fourth of july at my moms, and then a day at Schlitterbahn in Kansas City. My husband and I try to go to Schlitterbahn every year with one of our couple friends and we go without the kids so it's a nice little day's get-away. On the other hand, school starts in about 3 weeks and I'm sad that I won't be able to spend as much time with my boys. Do you guys enjoy the end of summer or do you dread going back (you or your kids)?

Double Polka Dots!

Awhile ago, the hubby and I were getting ready to go see a movie with some friends. I knew I really wanted to wear the polka dot top, but I had no idea what to wear with it. I challenged myself to wear the polka dot pants with it, and as a last thought, grabbed the blazer too, since movie theaters are often cold. End result? LOVE IT! I felt extremely comfortable in this outfit, both literally and figuratively, and when that happens, you know it's a great outfit!

I was photobomed!

When my husband and I are outside taking pictures, the boys are often outside riding their bikes or playing now that we've got a nice, big driveway. My youngest decided to get in on some of the action this time, however, this isn't the first time he's jumped in to some pictures!
